    there were a few of these in the one corridor...we didn't exactly linger in it.

    We had been pondering a return but, much as part of me would quite like to, I think I shant push my luck .... probably

    :p

    Been very interested in this stuff since I heard about the folks over at Spodden Valley in Rochdale. I hadn't really thought, (besides knowing the cancer causing element) about it much before. It is seriously an interesting subject the T&N empire.

    It's a combination of oil soaked glass strand and grey polyester type thread, They were running old skool looms weaving glass strand with stainless wire as the weft for use in heat-sheilds. The extraction system was shared between this and the ballistics section which was making stab vests from pre-woven fabrics.
